"Sharing wisdom, experience, and passion, chaplains from across the church invite us to consider how we are to live into our belovedness. In a rapidly changing world, in a world full of brokenness and messages of 'not enough, ' we are invited to consider how we are each more than enough because that is how God made us and that is how God loves us. . . . Touching on many of the topics that young adults have to grapple with and inviting us to go deeper, this book is a must-have for anyone in ministry with young adults."
--Shannon Kelly, Director of the Department of Faith Formation and Officer for Young Adult and Campus Ministries, The Episcopal Church

"If there isn't a healthy Christian community on your campus, use this book to start your own. If there already is, get involved and use this book to make it even better."
--Jason Evans, Missioner for Missional Communities, Episcopal Diocese of Texas
